Box Score

The Box Score is a breakdown of the week on the Football Fan’s Diet. Essentially, you can see how Scratch scored each day.

If you are not familiar with how the scoring works, you get a touchdown when you meet your health goals for the day and give up one when you don’t. Field goals are gained for exercise and given up for drinking beer. However, you can score your game however you damn well please. This is Scratch’s scoring system.

Scratch’s best days are called “Dynasty Days”. This is when he scores a TD and a FG and shuts out The Fat Man. He is then playing like a dynasty in the making. Conversely, “Laughing Stock” is when your day is 0-10 and so bad your health franchise is widely viewed as the laughing stock of your friends and family. days. In between are “Need Some Help” and “Wild Card” days. You probably get the point by now! Therefore, here is how Scratch is doing…

Scratch really got his ass handed to him this week by The Fat Man. It was a holiday week, but somewhere along the way—it all got away from him. The beer must dramatically go down if Scratch is to have any hope at all.

Scoring Summary

  • Monday (June 24th) - This was a decent day. I put in an average workout and then I made sure to get my calories in the form of Arby’s. Hmm. This might have been an early warning sign that I am beginning to obsess of counting calories.

  • Tuesday (June 25th) - Late night swim at Valley Brook Pool. It got rained out. I was planning on draining some Miller 64s in my YETI but the whole event ended early.

  • Wednesday (June 26th) - Skipped gym. Ate big chicken subs and nachos at home and watched Raiders of The Lost Ark.

  • Thursday (June 27th) - The Fourth of July. Managed to get a lack luster work out in. Walked a lot. However, beers at pool doomed me.

  • Friday (June 28th) - Things were going good, then some guy wrecked into our landscaping. I used this as an excuse to go eat wings at Hal’s Bar. There were no exercise and there was McDonald’s double cheeseburgers at night. Yes, it was one of those ugly evenings.

  • Saturday (June 29th) - Fun night at Jergel’s Rhythm Bar to see Bon Journey. However, I had beer, cheese fries, quesadillas, wings.

  • Sunday (June 30th) - Finally back to Club Julian for an OK workout on elliptical. Cooked out for Pop’s birthday. Felt the need to eat late at night, thus capping a crappy week.

What the Naysayers are sayin’

When Scratch steps on the scale, it says one person at a time please!

Scratch lay a major turd this week. I mean it was big. At least a two-flusher.
